God is Good!

I have been exhausted lately, due in part to waking to nurse the baby and school. Also, Ta has a double ear infection, although today he seems to be doing better. His tubes are once again clogged, but I am thankful they are still in place after 16 months. We were told they wouldn’t last more than 6-9 months, so they’ve been a great investment! Because of his ears, he hasn’t been sleeping very well. However, T.G. has slept through the night the past 2 nights. What a blessing!

As some of you know, she has been my stubborn child when it comes to feeding. She would not take a pacifier, wants nothing to do with a bottle, and at 5 months I attempted infant cereal. She gagged and puked, and made it clear she only wanted to nurse. Needless to say, she is trying my patience in that area! However, the past couple of days I have been able to get her to eat some cereal. Sunday evening she went on a feeding frenzy and ate about 3 tablespoons of the stuff. Monday night I wasn’t so lucky; she barely tolerated 2 spoonfuls. But, I fed it to her at 8pm, and then bathed her as usual. I think it helped to fill her belly. . .

Monday night/Tuesday morning was a rough night. Ta woke at 4am and didn’t go back to sleep until 5:15am. The alarm goes off at 6am! T.G. slept until I woke her at 8:45am- I thought perhaps she wasn’t feeling well either, but then last night she slept the entire night, as well. She woke up at 7:15am today. Thank you, Lord!

I also took one of my final exams last night. I had difficulty studying this past week; I just could not do it. Every time I sat down, my mind would wander about the many things to do, phone calls to make, emails to send, etc. Yesterday afternoon I reviewed my notes and prayed the Lord would help me recall the information I’ve learned over the semester. I have done well on my assignments so I could afford to miss 18 questions and still get an ‘A’ in the course. Plus, my instructor was offering extra credit, so I knew I could make up some points there, if needed.
Again, God answered my prayer and helped me to have clarity of thought for my exam. I didn’t answer everything, but I feel comfortable that I earned an ‘A’ overall. Now, if I could just focus on my exam for Saturday!
